The loss of a young child is devastating. Little Deegan was diagnosed with a cavernous brain malformation shortly before his second birthday. He was taken in for surgery right away, but there were complications. His parents, Bailey Johnson and Josh Pramann, were faced with a heart-wrenching decision.
Because they chose to donate Deegan’s organs, three other young children were saved. Deegan’s heart now beats in a 3-year-old, his liver saved a 1-year-old, and a 4-year-old received Deegan’s lower intestines (a very rare transplant procedure). Deegan’s knee cartilage was harvested and will be used to help many patients; it can be kept for up to five years to be used when needed.
